Can my son take Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) for ADD, even though he was just diagnosed with Rt bundle branch block? If not, can you recommend any natural supplements?
You need clearance . from his pediatric cardiologist 1st. RBBB may occur alone or with Atrial Septal Defect/other Congenital Heart Disease, cardiomyopathy or Hypertension. Natural supplements are ineffective in treating ADHD. Some, like St. John's Wort & energy drinks increase BP. All stimulant & non-stimulant meds affect heart rate & BP. See CHADD.org for how to get him a Section 504 at school & behavioral therapy. .
Cardiologist. prior to starting any new medication, whether prescribed by your pediatrician, psychiatrist, or if you buy it over-the-counter, you should discuss it with your child's cardiologist. Just because something is labeled as "natural" and sold in a "health-food type store" does not mean it is safe. Coordinate all meds and supplements with pediatrician and cardiologist.
